Only one person is serving a sentence for crimes committed against protesters during Maidan

Only one person is serving a sentence for the so-called "Maidan crimes", as reported by the Head of the department of special investigations of the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine, Sergiy Gorbatyuk, Radio Liberty writes.

"At present, we have 50 convictions as the results of the investigations and criminal proceedings. Only two people received a real penalty, and one person is serving his sentence. Charges have been laid against 412 persons, indictments against 258 people are in the possession of the court," Gorbatyuk stated.

In his opinion, this is not the result that the society expects, but the extensive work which is being carried out to collect the evidence of the crimes has not been completed yet. 

"Almost every week we have either new charges laid, or investigations completed, or indictments sent to the court. The process to determine the truth continues," he says.

During Euromaidan (Ukrainian Revolution of Dignity) 2.5 thousand people were injured during protests in the center of Kyiv. From November 21, 2013 to February 21, 2014, 104 people were killed. The majority were killed on February 20 by sniper shots.
